Full Plate of Fashion
We are very pleased that Crosby, Stills and Nash, Rachel Maddow and Fran Drescher signed plates on behalf of I HEART for Full Plate of Fashion!
I HEART is sponsoring the New York Coalition Against Hunger's Full Plate of Fashion Event. We are helping to collect a series of celebrity autographed and/or artist designed plates to be auctioned off the eve of the event - all proceeds donated to NYCCAH (read more below). The plate could be ceramic or paper, autographed or drawn on by a celebrity/public figure, or painted/drawn on by an artist.
ABOUT THE EVENT: http://www.nyccah.org/fullplateoffashion
Come join fashion enthusiasts and friends of the Coalition Against Hunger on June 12th for a Fashion Show featuring New York City designed clothing from 1925-1965. The event will begin at 7pm with a silent auction of hand crafted and celebrity designed plates and a community art display by New York City students. The Fashion Show will begin at 7:45pm and will feature original pieces from the era and will include two scenes: Scene I: "American Beauty 1950-1965" will be a salute to Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy styles. Black dresses, suits, and hats, mingled with bold reds and whites in many timeless and modern designs that are still symbols of American elegance recognized and duplicated around the world to this day. Scene II: "Art Deco Design 1925-1949" will feature the youthful aesthetic and short skirts from the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's inspired Hollywood glamour and French couture with clean, body-hugging lines and full, sweeping dresses that predate the look of the 1950's. This section will also feature "The New Look", launched famously by Christian Dior in 1947, celebrating the postwar lifting of fabric rationing and manufacturing restrictions.
